TYT: Fox News Blasts Obama For Exclusion, Forgets Bush Did Same



"A newsletter for conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham attacked President Obama for meeting with MSNBC pundits after the election, but left out the fact that George W. Bush met with conservative analysts including Ingraham herself in 2006.

"If Fox News hosts and conservative personalities had stopped by the Bush White House to discuss policy" the media "would have been rightly outraged," Ingraham's Dec. 5 newsletter said. "Given MSNBC's history of blatantly promoting the DNC's talking points and spewing left-wing talking points, maybe it's time they just became Obama's official mouthpiece."

As MediaMatters points out, in October 2006, the New York Times reported on a meeting between President Bush and several conservative radio hosts, including Sean Hannity, Mike Gallagher, Neal Boortz and Ingraham."*

Whoops! When criticizing Obama for inviting "influential progressives" to a White House meeting and excluding Fox News anchors, she said they would have been outraged if President Bush had only invited Fox News to a policy meeting. Well...he did. And Ingraham was there. Cenk Uygur breaks it down.
